What are Shopping Trolleys?

Shopping Trolleys, are used by customers in supermarkets and other large retail stores to allow customers to transport merchandise to the checkout counter during their shopping experience.

The manager of Humpty Dumpty Stores and Standard Food Markets (a small supermarket in Oaklahoma City, USA), Sylvan N Goldman, developed the shopping trolley in 19397 after he realized that if customers could carry more shopping, they would buy more.

He asked one of his employees, a mechanic named Fred Young, to make him a "shopping basket on wheels", which was a folding metal chair, mounted on castors with two baskets fitted to the front and the chairback acting as a handle.

When Sylvan Goldman first introduced the shopping cart on June 4, 1937 people were hesitant to use it. Men thought it 'effeminate,' and women felt it demeaned their ability to carry a shopping basket. So he paid models to push his "shopping basket on wheels" around the store filled with groceries, in order to encourage his customers to do likewise. After a while shopping carts became extremely popular and Goldman became a multimillionaire.

A mechanic named Arthur Kosted developed a method to mass-produce the shopping carts by inventing an assembly line capable of forming and welding the wire. The cart was awarded patent number 2,196,914 on April 9, 1940.

The first ever shopping trolley appeared in the UK in 1950 when the first Sainsbury's self-service store opened in Croydon, Surrey.

In 1996 Sweden became the first country to charge someone with being drunk in charge of a shopping cart.

In modern times, there are a wide variety of supermarket trolleys designed for ease of use, flexibility, durability, and affordability.
